The Partnerships in Dementia Care (PiDC) Alliance is focused on enhancing dementia care by changing the culture within long-term and community care to better reflect a relationship-centered, partnership approach to care. We are dedicated to improving the care experience and supports provided for persons living with Alzheimer’s Disease or a related dementia, their partners in care, and staff working in care settings. We believe that the quality of care can be improved only when the needs of all persons involved in the care context are valued, recognized, heard and addressed.

The Alliance supports culture change through Culture Change Coalition research sites across Southern Ontario and is co-led by Dr. Sherry Dupuis, Professor in the Recreation and Leisure Studies department at the University of Waterloo, and Dr. Carrie McAiney, Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University.

The PiDC Alliance was funded by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) grant and in-kind and financial contributions from Alliance partners.
